What does namasle mean?

Namasle isn't a word found in the English dictionary. What we found is the term "Namaste", a conventional Hindu expression on meeting or parting, used by the speaker usually while holding the palms together vertically in front of the bosom.

'Nama' means bow, as means I, and 'te' means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you."

It is a greeting that's used in yoga. The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.
